Comprehensive Clinical Services

AccessCNY offers a variety of clinic services. Speech and Language Pathology services help individuals increase their communication abilities so they can participate more fully in all aspects of life. Therapy services assist to improve phonology and articulation, decrease stuttering, improve oral motor skills and improve receptive and expressive language skills. We also offer services for Augmentative and Adaptive Communication (AAC) for individuals using assistive devices to generate speech.

Individuals with sensory integration issues can be either “over responsive” or “under responsive” in any one of the sensory systems (touch, taste, smell, etc.) or have a combination of both. AccessCNY provides multi-sensory experiences for people with a variety of sensory deficits. Individuals who have difficulty receiving, processing or responding to sensory information may demonstrate decreased attention span, limited social interaction, tactile defensiveness and/or over/under reaction to sensory inputs.

Physical therapy services help individuals increase their functional abilities and independence so they can participate more fully in all aspects of life. Therapy services assist to facilitate motor activity and learning, increase strength and endurance, improve balance and coordination, increase range of motion and relieve pain.

Consumer Directed Personal Services (CDPS) help people take control of their household and personal care needs. With the support of AccessCNY staff, CDPS participants screen, hire, train and supervise their personal assistants. This model provides individuals the opportunity to truly personalize their care, as they decide upon everything from their care schedule to the tasks their personal assistant complete.

AccessCNY serves as the fiscal intermediary for the program, which is an alternative to a traditional home care agency. Our staff not only handle human resources tasks such as payroll, but we provide support and training to both CDPS participants and personal assistants.
